The Subaru Legacy has long been one of the most honest and practical choices in the midsize sedan segment. And it's one of the few cars in the class to offer all-wheel drive –- it's standard, as it is on most Subarus. And yet the Legacy still offers good fuel efficiency, while being an excellent value and extremely safe.
Most noticeable about the new Legacy is exterior styling, which tries to be more seductive than before. While its exterior is roughly the same size as before, the 2015 Legacy is marginally bigger inside and in the trunk. Its slippery shape helps fuel economy, which is 26/36 mpg with the 175-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine used in most models. That motor and the 3.6-liter six-cylinder engines remain mostly unchanged, but both are tweaked for efficiency upgrades and all get a CVT transmission –- no manual is available anymore.
Buyers choose from four trim levels:
As tempting as the 3.6R sounds, the Legacy is no sports sedan. Stick with the peppy-but-efficient 2.5i models. The 2.5i Premium bundles the equipment buyers in this class want with advanced safety features that make the Legacy stand out, and all for less than $30,000.
